  • Publication number: 20190240394
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for delivering medicament to a patient. The apparatus may include elements with different capacities to attenuate or absorb sterilizing radiation. The apparatus may include a medicament delivery assembly with interactive elements for dose-setting, priming and medicament ejection. The assembly may include a chamber housing a radiation-sensitive medicament present in the apparatus during sterilization by electron beam. The assembly may include an actuator chassis, a drive mechanism, a needle-priming mechanism and a fluid-displacement mechanism including a fluid-displacement member. The chassis may be fixed, relative to an outlet, to the chamber. The member may be slidingly and/or threadingly engaged with the chassis, and may be configured to move relative to the outlet to deliver the medicament through the outlet. Assembly elements may be nested coaxially and/or stacked axially. The assembly may include at least one hollow region.

  • Patent number: 9745233
    Abstract: A process for converting tertiary halogenated hydrocarbons in a tertiary halogenated hydrocarbon-containing stream to a corresponding unhalogenated or less-halogenated unsaturated hydrocarbon product with the release of hydrogen halide involves contacting the tertiary halogenated hydrocarbon with a sorbent-type dehydrohalogenation catalyst in a reaction zone and optionally passing a stripping gas through the reaction zone to remove vapor phase reaction products from the reaction zone.

  • Publication number: 20170035444
    Abstract: Tissue removal probes comprise an elongated member, a drive shaft rotatably disposed within the member, and a rotatably tissue removal element mounted to the distal end of the drive shaft. One tissue removal element comprises a plurality of tissue-cutting filaments affixed at proximal and distal ends of the tissue removal element. The cutting filaments may have optional hinge points that allow the distal end of the tissue removal element to be inverted, thereby transforming the tissue removal element from a tissue-cutting device to a tissue-grasping device. Another tissue removal element may have a blunted tip to prevent distal tissue trauma and an irrigation port to provide irrigation fluid to the removed tissue and/or tissue removal element. Another tissue removal element has a proximal and distal spiral grooves that are oppositely pitched, so that removed tissue can be collected in the middle of the tissue removal element.

  • Patent number: 8038682
    Abstract: An apparatus for delivering bone cement into a vertebra includes a cannula and a mix and delivery device pivotally coupled to the cannula. The mix and deliver provides a single device in which a flowable compound may be mixed and the dispensed into the vertebrae through the cannula. The mix and delivery device includes a piston, slidably disposed within a barrel of the device, for advancing the bone cement through an outlet communicating with the cannula. An actuating device, which exerts a pressure, is connected to an inlet on the mix and delivery device (either directly or through a tube). The pressure created by the actuating device is used to advance the piston within the mix and delivery device.

  • Patent number: 6994689
    Abstract: A device for occluding a vessel employs one of a number of different expansion members joined to one or more elongate members. The expansion member may include a braid, one or more coils, ribs, a ribbon-like structure, a slotted tube, or a filter-like mesh. If the expansion member is enclosed by a suitable membrane, the device seals with the vessel wall to partially or completely occlude the vessel. A perforated membrane may be used to permit the perfusion of blood. The expansion member may be self-expanding, or it may be expanded by engaging it with one of the elongate members. Alternatively, the expansion member may be expanded by heating it.

  • Patent number: 6902641
    Abstract: A method of labelling an article is carried out by providing a heat-transfer label that includes a support portion and a transfer portion over the support portion for transfer of the transfer portion from the support portion to the article upon application of heat to the support portion while the transfer portion is placed in contact with the article. The transfer portion comprises a single or multiple color design. The transfer portion then is transferred from the support portion to the article. The method is particularly well-suited with silane-treated glass containers of the type that are subjected to pasteurization conditions, regardless of whether the glass containers have been pre-treated previously with polyethylene, oleic acid, stearate or the like.
